Here is a photo of my swap carrier. I made it before the Reno regional about 3 years ago. Kay is bummed that he isn't going because he loves to stand in one place and hold it up and swap with everyone. You may have seen him at an event doing this in the past! It was funny last night, I layed it out on the downstairs couch where we were working and watching tv, and he pulled a face and said " you can't go- I won't be there to hold this up for you, that really sucks." Hee hee what a guy!
I love it when he goes, he is the pack horse! Well, I also love his company. It is so funny to see all the women asking him questions like: do you stamp? His reply- yes and I create too as well as teach classes! They are simply shocked! Yes, I have the world's best hubby! Did you all know he signed up as my supporting demonstrator when I signed up?
This carrier is made with black twill fabric, and the clear acrylic you buy at the fabric store for covering tables. I measured it out cut it, sewed the pockets a bit big to allow for several swaps in a pocket and pinked the edges after sewing because my serger died that year. I have been asked to make them to sell, but I just have not done it. I am sure when I sit down to make another one I will have revisions for it (like a handle at one end!) I have also found that its not big enough this time and I have my business card swaps in a 2gallon zip lock and my stamp camp swaps in a baggie of their own as well. I am getting very excited to go and have all these swaps done.
Right now I am off to hang strips of muslin on the tomatoes, sunflowers etc and spray with fox urine from the bass pro shop to keep the nasty little creeps from ruining what's left before I get back home! grrrrrrr
have a marvelous day!
